Did you hit the madness and go shopping?

Not me! What I wanted to buy, I bought onine.  No crowds, no long lines, just me and my computer.  this is a much better way to shop.
This morning my neighbor saddled up her horse so that Ashlynn, my grandduaghter, could ride.  She was so excited.  "I'm a cowgirl now" she told me.
She had her first lesson.  She did very well controlling that huge animal.  She learned how to turn the horse, back her up and the most important one, how to stop him.

I even got on him.  I havent been on a horse in over 25 years!  My legs are reminding me of that now.

This was alot more fun than shopping in the crowds today.  Thanks Mary for letting us ride your horse!

Happy Thanksgiving

After a wonderful meal at my daughter in laws mother's house, our granddaughter came home with us to spend the night.  Her parents and other grandmother decided to brave the early sales at Wal-Mart.  Ashlynn decided that she and Peepaw should make a fairy house.   After much discussion a plan was made.

 They got straight to work with their design in mind.  It had to have windows for light and the ones in the attic had to be tooth shaped.

After alot of popsicle sticks, glue and paper, they finally finished the fairy house.
After it dries, Ashlynn says she will put her name on it and take it back to Texas.  At the rate she is loosing teeth, the tooth fairy needed a place to stay at their house.  She has been spending way to much time there lately!  I hope your Thanksgiving was as grand as mine!

                       Happy Thanksgiving All!!
  Hope your day was full of  fun, food, and family!

I love these short weeks!

  This past weekend Libbie and I went to the Holiday House in Little Rock.  It was at the convention center.  We spent 4 hours walking the aisles looking at all of the handmade items, pewter serving dishes, clothes, toys, food, Christmas decorations and just about anything else you can think of.
Yes it was that crowded!  I got a few Christmas presents bought.  My first ones.  I better get busy.  I like to be finished by the first of December.  That way I can enjoy the season.
After a long day of shopping, Libbie and I ate at The Olive Garden and headed home to rest our weary feet.
Sunday afternoon Doug and I went to see the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.  It was one of the better Bond movies.  I really liked it.  If you haven't seen it, I recommend it highly.  Then Monday I was off work.  Love those long weekends.  Since I had such busy weekend, Doug and I just vegged out on Monday.  We never even got dressed.  Stayed in our PJ's all day.  
Next week is an even shorter week.  We only work three days.  If I could only get them to change the work week to two days then one.....
Doug is down to 14 days left to work.  I have 69!  I like his numbers a whole lot better.  I wonder if he would trade?
